NFL Dream Team

The one question every sports fan asks/gets asked the most...who is your dream team?
Here is my number one rule...only pick players that you have seen play. Boom. I will be using a 4-3 defense, and pick the O Line as a whole. I will have starters only for right now. Let the games begin...

Quarterback- I'm wrestling with Montana, Manning, and Brady as my starter...I love Peyton but sometimes he fails too often in a tough spot but he is a better leader than any other QB I've seen. He could win with anyone. But, I think I want the original Joe Cool...I'm taking Joe Montana

Runningback- Hands down Barry Sanders. Fuck Emmit, Tomlinson, and Peterson they can't hold a candle to Mr.Sanders. I'd probably put Tomlinson as second but this is starters only...

Fullback- Gotta go Moose. Imagine Barry with Moose guiding him..and wait until you see the o line. Barry could hit 300 yards in one game.

Wide Receiver-  Okay, need two. First is no doubt, Jerry Rice. How to compliment him? Big deep threat? Moss, maybe? So many to choose from..Megatron, Andre Johnson, Steve Smith, Welker, Reed, Fitzgerald. Screw it, I'm going Larry Fitzgerald. Say what you will this guy deserves it.

Tight End- Gates or Gonzalez? Maybe Jason Witten? No, Tony Gonzalez, definitely.

O Line- Best line I've ever seen spanned the entire late nineties and belonged to the Denver Broncos. These guys made anyone a 1,000 yard runner. The 1997 Denver Offensive line is a model for all teams to follow.

Defensive End- Need to pick just one more because Reggie is a lock. I'm not taking Strahan..I'm putting Bruce Smith ahead of him.

Defensive Tackle- Okay, John Randle and who else? Oh, Sapp..duh.

Linebackers- On the outside I want LT and Ray Lewis, then put Urlacher in the middle. I dare anyone to go to the middle of the field.

Cornerbacks- Charles Woodson is a lock and I'm thinking Champ Bailey across from him.

Safety- Troy and Ed Reed. Who else could you have? Maybe Lynch but to me no one is above Troy and Reed.

Kicker- Adam Vinateri is known to be a lock kicker, but seriously..with Montana, Rice, Barry I'm not worried about kicking.

Punter- Does this matter? Nobody is moving on this D anyway. Jeff Feagles. Why not?  Punters are rather streaky anyway but Feagles was extremely solid his last few years.

There it is. Boom. The unbeatable team. Well, maybe not my own rule forbids me from taking some great players. But, all of these guys in their prime makes one tough team.
